Question about Marantz SR-5200 Receiver

1 Answer

I can not get surround mode on my Marantz 5200 receiver

I own a Marantz SR5200 receiver and have done so for about 6 years. I have attached to it a Cambridge Audio 80 series DVD player. I have never had any problems with it and it has worked perfectly fine.
I have recently moved house and when I have reconnected the DVD player to the receiver, the sound works but I can no longer get surround sound and it only plays in stereo. The surround mode is set to auto and I have tried different settings to ensure its not that. I have tried different dvd's to make sure its not the dvd. I have checked the speakers and the testing works (ie. all 5 speakers work) but still no surround sound. I have looked at all the settings including on my DVD player, but still no surround sound.
The only difference between the previous setting and the new one is that I have connected the scart to a new flat screen TV, and i am using a new 10 m scart cord as the DVD player and receiver are farther away from the TV location. However, I do not see how that would impact the surround sound as the DVD player is connected by the same digital cable to the receiver as before and in same places.
Your help would be appreciated.

Receiver Sr5200 shut down in 5.1 mode


chances are you have the volume too loud and the speaker wires are crossed.
all speaker wires need to be with the positive on the right and negative on the left if you have them anywhichway than it will work on low volume and not a very good sound.
look closely at the wires and they should have a red or so color on one side or the wire jacket itself will have a round side and a flat side

sounds like you might need to open it up and check the speaker wires that you plug your speakers up to it might be lose or something else like that cause it happened to me before and that was it.

Marantz SR5200 receiver works only with remote not manually


Check for a stuck/jammed switch, press each switch if one doesn't make a normal click sound or it doesn't move at all that's your problem.
If that's not it check the owners manual for how to reset the receiver (not all manuals will tell you how to reset it) Another way to reset it is to short the memory cap, but that is better left to a tech.

Loud distortion on Front Channels


Well, the nice thing about the newer amps is that the actual amp circuitry is all contained in a module and you don't have to do much troubleshooting. Just replace the module for that pair of channels. Bad news of course is the modules can be pricey. Should say right on it the part number, order it from mcminone.com or whoever, solder it in, use new conductive grease (many times I think these modules fail because the grease gets old, the module overheats and toasts) and you should be fixya'd
